This volume explores how the Cape Colony was imagined as a political community by considering a variety of writers, from major European literati and intellectuals (Cames, Southey, Rousseau, Adam Smith), to well-known travel writers like Franois Levaillant and Lady Anne Barnard, to figures on the margins of colonial histories, like settler rebels, slaves and early African nationalists. Complementing the analyses of these primary texts are discussions of the many subsequent literary works and histories of the Cape Colony.
